Those are hawt!

Old lenses suffer from age embrittlement, which means that the original Vents lenses are theoretically unsafe to use. The "reinvention" is fitting them elegantly to modern frames with still-in-production lenses.

Let me know if you're interested in modernizing! Otherwise, those are an excellent museum piece! I've got a mask in that condition in tigerstripe hanging on my wall. Beautiful!
